Brief History of LED Lighting

Brief History of LED Lighting

The origination of the LED goes back as far as the early years of the 20th century, when electroluminescence was discovered by British scientist H. J. Round.

Today's LED lighting uses a small semiconductor chip rather than a filament in a bulb to produce light.

These chips are small and compact, and can be programmed to output any color of light imaginable. This means that you can have a single bulb controlled by a remote or a phone app that's capable of outputting white light, red light, or any other color.

LED light bulbs for home are available as replacement bulbs for almost all types of bulb bases and shapes. LEDs also come built into desk lamps, chandeliers, pendants and other lighting fixtures as a dedicated array, so there are no bulbs to replace.

All in all, LED is a very adaptable technology that can be used in a wide range of applications.
